Smoking Gun Slots

A smoking gun is something that proves someone did something – usually something they should not have done. In this case, though, it really is a gun – or a set of crossed pistols appearing in the Smoking Gun online slot game.

Let’s explore this game’s potential to see how much you might like to play it. Grab your gun partner and let’s saddle up and explore!

Developer information

The Smoking Gun slot game was created by Rival Gaming.

That guarantees we get a demo version

If you are hesitant about whether this is the game for you, you can try the demo first. It works just the same as the real version, just without asking for any money to play it. Instead, you use the practice credits.

Saddle up for a Wild West theme

You probably figured this one out, but we are happy to confirm it for you here.

A wild design in action here too

The design shows us some transparent reels. These make it easy to see the scenery behind them, which is a traditional Wild West street. Just the sort of place a showdown might happen, don’t you think?

How to play the Smoking Gun slot

There are five reels to watch as the game begins. It doesn’t take long to realize there are no progressive jackpots here though.

A Wild West game would not be complete without a sheriff. He is an expanding wild, so whenever he appears, he will expand to cover his reel. This happens if there are other prizes available if the expansion occurs. He replaces everything apart from the game’s scatter – a usual rule you’re likely familiar with.

The scatter is a wanted poster, which looks good and fits the theme as well. Watch out for this as it could be useful…

How many lines can you play on?

There are 50, which is an impressive amount. Up and down arrows allow you to adjust the quantity you play on, although we always cover them all. There is nothing worse than missing a prize that lands on a deactivated line.

How to place bets

Use the controls underneath the reels to decide on your coin value. It must be between one cent and a quarter. The game also allows you to start with one coin per line or reach a maximum of 10, or to sit somewhere between those extremes.

Reach the paytable via two buttons

You’ll see these above the first and fifth reels. Choose one and view the table that appears.

No bonus in this scene

The slot game does not include any bonus features.

Free spins can be won though

You can secure 10 free games whenever three of those scattered wanted posters show up on a spin. Before these begin, you are asked to select one of three bonus features to occur during the games. we like this bit because it means you can choose different options if you trigger it more than once.

There are exploding sticky wilds, galloping expanding wilds, or ricochet drop symbols. All are potentially cool to see in action and might help you net some more prizes. We’re not sure we have a favorite, to be honest!

The RTP is lower than we expected

It isn’t that common to find an RTP below 95%, thankfully. Unfortunately, this game drops slightly below that at 94.93%.

Our rating for Smoking Gun slots

There is enough here to entertain most players. The lower return to player value lets down the side a bit, but other than that, it’s a good 7/10 score from us.

No progressives up for grabs here

It means you’re limited to paytable prizes, and there are plenty of possibilities in there. The top prize seems to be 2,000x your wager for one fortunate spin.
